Wherever we go and whatever we do, we must make sure that the Lord is with us.
We must not do things in our own strength or in our own wisdom.
The ‘rod of God’ was a symbol that the Lord was with them.
Now, as you face the day, take hold of His hand, and He will give you the victory.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me. Even when I walk through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid, because You are close beside me. Your rod and Your staff protect and comfort me. Amen.
We are living in a time of great global change.
Things are not as they were, and the new buzzword is ‘the new normal’.
Perhaps, in all of this, the Lord is also bringing about something new.
Let us be ready, flexible, and willing to embrace the new things He has for us.
Prayer: Lord, when You do something new, it is always with the prospect of better things.
Help me to be ready to embrace the new, with the full knowledge that You will make a way in the wilderness,
and streams in the desert for me. Amen.
The Lord knew His people needed water and He did an impossible thing.
At the instruction of God, Moses struck the rock and water gushed out.
In this way God showed Himself to be gracious and merciful.
The Lord is your Provider, so expect and believe for His provision, in your life.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that I can trust You with every aspect and detail of my life.
You can cause water to gush out of a rock to bring relief and blessing, and, in the same way,
I will trust You to work a miracle in my situation. Amen.
What an awesome and wonderful moment this must have been.
In one moment in time, the glory and wonder of God appeared for all to see.
The desert is not the usual place to see such a wonderful thing.
As you look out over your life, expect His glory to appear to you.
Prayer: Lord, thank You that You are with me and Your hand is on my life.
I long to see more of Your greatness and wonder in my life. As I look to You,
may I see more than I have ever seen before. Amen.
Often the challenges we go through seem like they could destroy us.
Difficulties, however, can have another purpose all together.
The Lord can take the challenge and turn it into something for His glory.
HE can use the test, and turn it into a testimony for His glory.
Prayer: Lord, You know what I am facing and what I am going through.
Help me to realise that the stumbling blocks in life,
can become the steppingstones to the better things You have prepared for me. Amen.
